Pick up from your hotel in Kota Kinabalu around 1330 hours and travel past padi fields, small kampungs and oil palm plantations. Your destination is the Garama/Klias Wetlands, some 25 km south of Beaufort, a beautiful environment of rivers, mangrove forest and sago palms. This is home to the unique proboscis monkey (Nasalis Larvatus), endemic only to Borneo. In the late afternoon, as our small open boat drifts past the mangrove, groups of these amazing animals make their way to the riverbank before settling down for the evening. This is a wonderful opportunity to watch these animals in the wild as dusk falls. Upon return, witness the glittering fireflies on the nearby trees. Dinner is provided, before the return road trip back to Kota Kinabalu. (D)
